    This photo was taken directly from a Common Core workbook. Common Core is a UN sponsored universal school curriculum being introduced throughout the US, and other countries. Notice how the wording of our 2A has been changed. This is how they are teaching the children of today to think of our Rights!

    These are rights not gifts from the governments. The government may not put stipulations on them, take them from us, or turn our children against us!

    I've we don't fight this battle for our children, given enough time, the system will make this seem normal to them. How many generations until we lose it all? CommonCore2A.jpg

    Completely agree this stuff should not be taught with a "give up your rights" slant like that. That said, I thought I read the other day that that particular booklet was not part of common core - it has been in use at a school (or maybe school district) in Illinois and was written by a couple of teachers who haven't been teaching there for quite some time now. Personally I believe those teachers who wrote it should have their teaching credentials pulled for life and if the current school/district administration should loose their jobs as well if they don't replace the misinformation from the teaching curriculum.

    I believe you are correct. As I recall this is not a common core book at all. While I would love to do away with common core entirely it is also not right to use false information to support doing so. If we have to resort to that then it probably isn't worth fighting in the first place.

    Read the same thing, its a workbook two former educators at one particular school developed and is only used at that school.

    Here is a story on a more widespread textbook used in the High Schools.

    Then there's this:

    And this:

    I've seen those first two. That last one is new to me though. Makes me thankful my children are all past high school now as I would have come unglued if I had seen that on a suggested reading list for them.

    I sincerely apologize for taking someone else's word that this was a Common Core example. There is no doubt, however, that Common Core is teaching an incorrect and distorted view of 2nd Amendment rights, so my concern is valid:

    Not a huge issue. It just upsets me when I see stories being spread around that are not accurate when we have plenty of accurate information already to justify our position. (I share your position on this and have seen enough to know they are manipulating the minds of our children)

    Common Core has it's own set of issues and plenty of reasons not to like it. Wether or not this was part of that, it does show how we need to be aware of what our children are being taught. Teachers become propaganda ministers once we let Big Brother start determining all of the content in schools.

    No apology necessary Zeke - I've been caught off guard on occasion myself - since I'm not a journalist publishing an article I don't generally go and do all the research on everything I read. Even though I know the media is slanted and even accepts payment from groups/governments to slant a story a certain way I still take some of the ones that seem truthful and fit into the puzzle as I assume they should at face value. Not many have the time or inclination to research every article before passing on the information to others .

    Either way - both those teachers who wrote that garbage and those who push common core should be purged from education. I know a gal who was a teacher in CA but moved into law enforcement after she grew tired of playing by the rules and not interjecting political views into lessons but getting ostracized and called on the carpet for correcting others who were pushing the dem/left agenda. She told me that there was no more reward in teaching when you just couldn't make a difference. The entire agenda of the education system was to spoon feed a socialist agenda to the next generation and any who dare try to even move to a neutral stance, let alone a conservative one, was driven from the system.

    if you want to win you have to fight the way they do or worse. It is not an excuse to purposely lie as you said there are plenty of legit stuff out there. but being nice and polite has got us into the position we are in. They are louder more organized and know what they want to achieve as the end result, and will do whatever is necessary to accomplish their end result. Meanwhile, we get a victory here or a victory there. Doesn't slow them down a bit they just figure out another angle of attack and it never stops. If we want to win that is what we need to do. I will go back to being quiet

    Why not? If the Looney Left can lie about the 2nd Amendment using false statistics why shouldn't we?

    Personally I will not become them to do so. If I have to do so then it means my argument is too week to stand on it's own.
